INTRODUCTION
1.1 General:
The basic and most important constructional material for infrastructural development isordinary portland cement-OPC. Ordinary portland cement(OPC) is conventionally used as thePrimary binder to produce concrete. The environmental issues associated with the OPC areWell known. The amount of the carbon dioxide released during the manufacture of OPC due toThe calcination of the limestone and combustion of fossil fuel is in the order of one ton for everyTon of OPC produced. In addition, the extent of energy required to produce OPC is only nextTo steel and aluminium .India is third largest cement producing country in the world, next only to china and japanDespite OPC being highly valuable and wonderful building material, it suffers from variety of Maladies. The maladies include depletion of natural resources like lime stone in productionOf OPC, large amounts of energy consumption in manufacture results in global warming andClimate change, cause panic in the whole world, spiraling cost of OPC in developing countriesLike India . research has been in progress all over the world accruing several benefits replacementOf OPC with CCMS(Complimentary Cementing materials) like Rice husk ash, silica fume , flyashAnd others has negated the ill effects of OPC to a large extent. Further the availability of fly ashWorldwide creates opportunity to utilize this by-products of burning coal, as a substitute for OPCTo manufacture concrete.CONT-
